Equity Fund: $500,000

Applicant: Tattnall County Board of Commissioners


Description:
Equity funds to assist in the construction of a 6,515 SF Technology Center adjacent to Southeastern Technical College in Glennville. The satellite campus of STC is located in the old Glennville Middle School Building dating from the 1920's. The age and construction of the old school do not make it practical to expand or renovate to accommodate a technology center. However, by partnering with the Technical College, the workforce development center will provide trained high-tech faculty, administrative support, computer equipment and software in support of technology training, adult literacy classes and distance learning capabilities. The technology center is urgently needed in a county where 43% of the population has less than a high school education, and as such, has little high-tech training.


Total Budgeted Project Cost: $753,805
